Mama's Broken Heart

129 2 0

By: Miranda Lambert

I cut my bangs with some rusty kitchen scissors

I screamed his name 'til the neighbors called the cops

I numbed the pain at the expense of my liver

Don't know what I did next, all I know I couldn't stop

Word got around to the barflies and the baptists

My mama's phone started ringin' off the hook

I can hear her now sayin' she ain't gonna have it

Don't matter how you feel, it only matters how you look

Go and fix your make up, girl, it's just a break up

Run and hide your crazy and start actin' like a lady

'Cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together

Even when you fall apart

But this ain't my mama's broken heart

Wish I could be just a little less dramatic

Like a Kennedy when Camelot went down in flames

Leave it to me to be holdin' the matches

When the fire trucks show up and there's nobody else to blame

Can't get revenge and keep a spotless reputation

Sometimes revenge is a choice you gotta make

My mama came from a softer generation

Where you get a grip and bite your lip just to save a little face

Go and fix your make up, girl, it's just a break up

Run and hide your crazy and start actin' like a lady

'Cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together

Even when you fall apart

But this ain't my mama's broken heart

Powder your nose, paint your toes

Line your lips and keep 'em closed

Cross your legs, dot your eyes

And never let 'em see you cry

Go and fix your make up, well it's just a break up

Run and hide your crazy and start actin' like a lady

'Cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together

Even when you fall apart

But this ain't my mama's broken heart
